When I try inserting the processor as demonstrated in the tutorial video, it’s not easy to press down the bottom antenna head. What should I do?

I accidentally mixed up the screws when installing the Upgrade Kit. How can I tell which is which?

If I installed the incorrect screw into the battery and I can visibly see the Push 3 case bulging from the top side of the encasing. What should I do?
